Of Such Small Differences by Joanne Greenberg
"He stood in the cold outside and to the hinge side of the door so other people could move past him."
"John Moon was 25, good-looking, intelligent, gifted, and beginning to make his mark as a poet. Leda Milan was a talented and ambitious young actress. They met and were drawn to each other. But there was a barrier between them. Leda could see and hear. John could not.
Nobody ever said that love was easy -- or what a special kind of wonderful it could be. . ." -- from the back cover
I liked this book about people trying to communicate. John, Leda, his family, co-workers - all make mistakes and assumptions about what others are trying to say. Yet even with problems, friendships are formed.
